Morocco is tailor-made
for travellers and tourists. From the dunes of the Sahara to the peaks of the High
Atlas, Morocco is full of variety and is truly an exotic getaway. The colourful
energy of the Marrakech markets creates a sense of adventure to all who visit.
If you are new to
this part of the world, we have created a small bucket list of things you should
try and do whilst visiting.
1 – Ride a camel
in the desert This may sound cliché,
but when Morocco is ever brought up in conversation camels seem to spring to
mind. There is something extremely magical about riding a camel through the
dunes, and even more so when you can do this in the Sahara Desert. The Sahara
Desert is the world’s largest hot desert stretching 9.4 million square
kilometres. The dunes are a sea of sand and whilst riding a camel into the sun,
with the quietness and surreal-ness, it is an experience you will not forget.
2 – Stargaze in the
The Sahara is
arguably the best place to stargaze, as you are so far from civilisation and
the sky is so open and clear. If you are used to living in a built-up area, you
may have forgotten what the night sky truly looks like. Make your way up a sand
dune and just lie there, maybe bring along a blanket and a bottle of bubbly to
make the experience even more special.
3 – Experience
the markets of Marrakech
Marrakech is a
beautiful and tumultuous city rolled into one. It is a place which is home to
palaces, gardens, architecture and markets. Marrakech is a true “year round”
destination, but in the spring and autumn the city is at its best, with almost
guaranteed sunshine. Whilst walking through the market you will experience
sights, sounds, textures and tastes. Indulge in exotic Moroccan foods and feast
your senses on the spectacle of Marrakech’s chaotic main square.
Once you have
seen the market, lose yourself in the maze-like allys and streets of this vast
and interesting city.
4 – Visit Ait
city has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. It is a huge
fortification that is made up of six Kasbahs and almost fifty ksars, and is an
outstanding example of Moroccan architecture. When visiting Morocco this is one
place you must visit.
5 – Relax in Agadir
Agadir is a city
which lies in Morocco’s south Atlantic coast and is often referred to as its
top seaside resort. With around 10 kilometres of sandy beach, cafes, bars and
restaurants. Agadir was completely rebuilt following an earthquake in 1960,
however it is now the country’s premier destination for sun and sand. Here you
can relax and soak up the sun, and the sparkling blue water is also perfect for
a dip to cool off.
6 – Explore The
The High Atlas is
North Africa’s greatest maintain range and contains some of the most beautiful
and intriguing regions in Morocco. The shimmering haze beyond the walls of
Marrakech, long streaks of snow sit on the rugged horizon. It’s often referred
to as a trekkers paradise, as it runs diagonally through Morocco for almost
1000 kilometres. Snow falls regularly from September to May making the
landscape change dramatically.
